Recruitment & Interview skills training

In today’s busy world, it is not always easy to devote enough time to recruitment training and activities . However, choosing the wrong candidate will cost your organisation thousands of pounds in money, time and lost productivity – and cost you a significant amount of time.

When it comes to adding to your team, it pays to get the recruitment process right first time.

Employing people that are unsuitable for your organisation or for a particular role can lead to high staff turnover, issues with employee morale and significant unnecessary costs.

Recruiting isn’t as simple as just sending out a job advert and keeping your fingers crossed. There are a number of other important factors to consider.

The key to getting it right is recruitment training, careful planning, a clear strategy and a focus on fairness.

This recruitment training course will steer away from the HR policy type content and focus more on the personal rapport building skills and body language.

It will cover the whole process, not just interviewing but also planning and giving sufficient time to be effective.

It will look at competency-based questions and will include a model to support interviewers in delving further into candidate responses, rather than just accepting a surface answer.

The recruitment training workshop will provide a good mix of relevant theory relating to recruitment techniques and skills and the opportunity to try these out through activities and group discussion.
